When one closely views America today, there are similar developments. OK Black Americans are not in physical shackles and possessed like caged beasts of labor and raping like in the days of southern slavery, but there is a form of slavery practiced today that is just as oppressive as the physical slavery of old.
The slavery I am referring to is both mental and philosophical in nature. When one views the living conditions of many American urban ghettos, things are not much better than what the slaves experienced during the years of forced labor. For example, slave masters are not today blowing away young black males at record numbers. But rather, it is other blacks who are today voluntarily harming their fellow black Americans at a level that dwarfs the multiple years of oppression during the awful democrat party ally Ku Klux Klan reign of terror.
Frederick Douglas and most other black slaves desired not only to be free, but to assume their rightful place as Americans. Their thirst for real knowledge was unrelenting. It did not matter that the democrat dominated south at the time did not allow blacks to read. If they had an opportunity to learn even the simplest level of reading, writing and arithmetic they would go for it with gusto. But today, after decades of programed government school indoctrination at the behest of democrat/leftist control, most black Americans now enslave themselves with self proclaimed victimhood.
Until democrats dominated most school systems in America, even during the Jim Crow era, if a young black American attended school, they were educated and qualified to get into university, of course many democrats did not allow or want blacks to attend college or university. Ironically, today with leftist democrats in control of the schools, most black students do not qualify to attend university. Moreover, democrat controlled schools have gotten rid of good skilled trades instruction such as plumbing, electrical, construction, or computer programming. The democrat/leftist concept of low expectation years ago was enacted to set black Americans on a downward path of low intellectual achievement. What the democrat/ leftist could no longer do through legal edict is now voluntarily carried out by many Black Americans against themselves.
So now, we have a second Civil War brewing in the United states. One side is comprised of those who want the status quo of low Black achievement, bitterness against the United States and the self-destruction of black Americans to continue. It would be wrong if I did not remind you about the leftists goal to fundamentally transform America into another Venezuela or Argentina. If that were not true, there would not be the vast urban wastelands in our republic that resemble third world countries today. Check out skid row in Los Angeles, for example.
On the other hand, there are many, including yours truly who want to encourage our great nation to fully engage the astute principles enumerated in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. What is taught to one generation dictates the direction the nation takes in the next. That alone is a very good reason to restore a high quality of authentic education and the traditional family as well. In addition, a return to America’s Judeo/Christian ethics and belief in God almighty would also reap great benefits.
